Our first trip to a back country ski lodge and it was incredible. Comfortable surrounding and great food. Fun company. The location is simply stunning surrounded by snow and peaks. Snowshoed and skied and took loads of photos.

Had the most amazing family get together (multi generation). The guides were phenomenal for laying different options for the varied group and Jackie went out of her way to make a great experience for the kids (which means parents all had a great time!!) Could not recommend enough. Love love love. And right in our own back yard in Canada.
